More than 500,000 people are currently using Wegoby to help manage their obesity in the United States alone. While the medicine has been approved for this purpose and gained a lot of traction in recent times for its impressive effects, some people have also been experiencing some serious side effects because of the drug.

If you have been negatively affected by Wegovy, it is important that you know your legal rights, as you might be eligible for compensation. This article will explore your options if you or someone close to you is looking for legal aid in this matter.

Common and Serious Side Effects

One of the more serious issues known at this time is the fact that Wegovy has been linked to stomach paralysis, a severe condition that can cause digestive problems and further complications down the line.

Patients who have been diagnosed with stomach paralysis may be able to seek legal ramifications due to the lack of proper warning and, as such, stand a chance to improve their quality of life with compensation and help with medical bills while also seeking justice at the same time.

This can require serious and urgent medical attention, decrease the quality of life dramatically, or even result in other complications that can be life-threatening if left untreated in rare instances.

Legal Recourse and Options

Seeking legal aid to hold companies responsible for not divulging the proper warnings and information about potential side effects can be a way to get compensation for the medical bills and pain and suffering experienced.

What options you have will depend on your circumstances and conditions, as Wegovy is still relatively new on the market and thus has not been fully explored, either in terms of medical or legal terms.

The most common course of action is filing a lawsuit, but it is important to know what makes a patient eligible in the first place. Typically, this requires evidence in the form of medical records or similar that you have indeed experienced complications such as stomach paralysis.

Similarly, testimony from medical professionals and others will also be paramount in collecting the various pieces needed to form a solid case and, in turn, move on to a potential trial or settlement.

It is important to realize that these types of lawsuits are somewhat time-limited due to the statutes of limitations. Because of this, we advise you to contact us at Shamis & Gentile, P.A., as early as possible in order to hear more about your options.

The goal will not only be to seek justice and have the medical company rectify and acknowledge their mistake and hopefully change their way of doing business going forward, but also to cover your medical expenses and compensate you for potentially lost wages, pain and suffering, as well as other damages resulting from complications due to taking the Wegovy medicine.
